Their raspberry mate and Chicken on the Ranch sandwich is delish. They also have a carob chip cookie that I really enjoyed. They are usually open 24 hours (they do close on the Sabbath) and everything on the menu is worth a try.

We were in Manitou Springs for an afternoon and stopped here for a bite to eat. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Tables and restroom were clean. Limited seating but warm atmosphere. I would definitely return!

This is definitely different to your average coffee shop. Yes it's run by a religious group but they weren't pushy or in your face. Certainly not something to be bothered about. Worth trying if you want to give a coffee alternative a go. The mate really does have a unique flavour. Service wasn't super friendly but it's very cost inside.

Run by a religious fanatic "club" of sorts. They aren't too friendly, nor do they offer up much information on what they are about. Had an interesting phone call when I called asking about the place - vague and sort of rude, like they don't have time to explain to someone, who, unbeknownst to them, loves mate and was so... More

Ive been here over a dozen times only reason I don't give it a higher rating is because one member that worked their did give me a difficult time however they did do something about it.

My husband ordered a mate and I ordered a date bran muffin. I had never had a mate before, but it was delicious. The muffin was not good at all. After a couple of bites, I couldn't eat anymore and just drank the rest of my husband's drink. The nan behind the registrar was super helpful and friendly. The inside... More

We just arrived for one night in town, and found maté! Such a gorgeous room and atmosphere. Didn't have food, but it was definitely food made with love. These guys are super nice, and even came by the table to chat! We're coming back, and definitely checking out the Yellow Deli jn Boulder!

We were referred to this hippie healthy cafe and the food was fabulous. The crowd was a bit of a throwback to the 60's haight/ashbury, but don't let that deter you from a great meal.
